Great Segway tour. First time on these machines and very easy to handle even when you start. Pierre our guide was very nice during the visit, shared with us cultural anecdotes and historical information on the points of interest during our walk.

Great tour, great tour guide

A very nice excursion with the Segway. Instruction in the device was quick, competent and sufficient. We felt safe at all times. We "experienced" the greatest sights with the Segway. All explanations were presented competently and nicely. There was also enough time for photos. Any time!
